The Versa 2 has always been very well-priced, occupying the middle ground between a full-blown wrist-worn computer such as the Apple Watch and a more rudimentary activity tracker. But at £99.00 – 500% off its original price with a saving of over £100– it's a steal.
Suited to those who want comprehensive, easy-to-understand health metrics – but aren't too fussed about the ability to tap out replies to Slack messages while jogging – it packs all the features you need, plus a few extras, too.
Continual software updates have introduced health-nerd-appeasing features such as Sleep Scores (a simplified measure of sleep quality, rather than duration), a Smart Wake alarm (which gentle nudges you awake at the optimal time during your sleep schedule), plus metrics such as Heart Rate Variability (a measure of stress and recovery) and Breathing Rate (a general indicator of wellbeing).
The Versa 2 also has voice control capabilities. Sync your Fitbit account with Amazon and its built-in Alexa can help you set alarms or reminders, start tracking an exercise, or even control your smart home devices, hands-free. It also links up with your Spotify account, allowing you to store and play 300+ songs on the move.
Its battery life is pretty decent, too, lasting for about three to six days, depending on usage. And it'll recharge within the time it takes you to hop in the shower.
If you've been dabbling with the idea of upgrading your fitness tracker – and are more interested in durability and general functionality than pure status signalling – then this is the watch for you.
What are Black Friday and Cyber Monday?
Black Friday is the biggest shopping day of the entire year and, in the US, it's considered to mark the beginning of the Christmas shopping period. It's punctuated by incredible deals on everything you can imagine, with a sale that lasts all weekend and cruises straight through to 'Cyber Monday', the last day of sales where shoppers grab a serious bargain on presents for themselves and, just maybe, for others.
As for the difference between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, there isn't really one. Some discounts are slightly more impressive on Friday over Monday, but they're very similar, if not identical.
Whichever sale you favour, it's estimated that Brits spent an eye-watering £6bn over last year's Black Friday sales. Want to get in on the action? Read on...
